About the Play

Published in 2007 and written by by Don Zolidis, "The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon" is noteworthy for its comedic interweaving of both well known and obscure Brothers Grimm fairy tales and its lively incorporation of audience interaction.

The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil's Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands.

About ACTS (Augustana Collaborative Theatrical Society)

ACTS logoACTS is a student-led theatre organization devoted to the social and artistic aspects of theatre. The mission of the group is to:

  • Educate
  • Expose
  • Expand Opportunities

ACTS is committed to providing diverse theatrical opportunities to the students of Augustana University. In collaboration with the the Augustana Theatre faculty, ACTS is able to produce three productions a year in the Mary Harum Hart Acting Studio in the Edith Mortenson Center. These productions are selected, produced, directed, designed, managed, and performed by Augustana students. ACTS aims to expose the community to the raw, social and artistic elements of theatre by producing works that are seldom produced in a main stage environment. All of ACTS productions are free to the public. You can learn more about ACTS through their Facebook page or Twitter (@aboutACTS).
